    I like this series (what's not to like, really? Hunky aliens entirely devoted to the women they save....yasssss) and I liked this book overall, but I did feel like there were a few scenes where the action jumped (for lack of a better way of putting it) and I had to go back and reread t...

    Better than the last two One of the things I liked about this book is how the author managed the language barrier. Like the previous books, the translators were still in effect. However, she allowed for some miscommunications due to slang and other nuisances. I didn?t like that s...

    The Valos of Sonhadra series is a Sci-Fi alien romance with each of the 9 books in the series being told by a different author. If you have a favourite author of the bunch and don't want to read them all don't worry, each book can be read as a standalone. The background story for each ...

    Interesting tale Although this story has much to offer, it is not to my personal taste. The characters were too filled with hate. The ending was good and I enjoyed it. ...

    Nope. Just Nope. Dnf at 85% I kept skimming over the paragraphs throughout. But then the plot took a turn in a way that I didn?t like. I stopped when she finally met Galan because wow they were taking the Anguish and Angst really seriously and there was not enough sweetness or cute m...

    I really enjoyed most of this book. I kinda felt like it wrapped up a little too quickly at the end, but I felt the middle dragged a little thus my four star rating. That being said it is a great addition to the series and definitely worth reading if you?ve made it this far. ...

    I enjoyed this Authors story So Ms.Lucas picks up where the first book left off which I thoroughly appreciate and it's about Yahiro what a name anyways she was in prison because she was an undercover cop trying to expose her father and step brother, they sold women and dealt drugs ...

    Didn't care for this one much. Yahiro didn't think she would ever go to prison. She thought she would always be on the otherside of the law. However, that wasn't the case and she ended up being blamed for things, while responsible, were largely more a part of her family's business...

    Wonderful book with such a touching story. The men were just wonderful and Yashiro was so sad yet strong. I am so glad she got her HEA. The world building was outstanding and fascinating. Each author has brought their own style of writing and enhanced their stories. They have managed t...

    Loved this complex, and sometimes confusing story about the h who was a prisoner after being an undercover cop. She got lost in the depravity of her role. The 1st H is wonderful, she has found his heartstone, and he is mad for her. But he is one of 3 brothers, they all know she is thei...

    Amazing book! This book was AMAZING!! I've read up to this one, the 5th book of 8, and I have to say... This book, #5 in the series, is my absolute favorite yet!!! I LOVE how it rounded out with all the characters, as well as went beautifully with the rest of the world building as ...

    Yahiro is a rather tragic figure. Went through a lot of awful things in her life. Warning a lot of mental torture and implied sexual torture in her story before she ended up in space ship prison. After the ship crashes on an alien planet she manages to run away while she hears some of ...

    I tried with this one and did read the entire thing when what I wanted to do was DNF. Radiant is a part of a more extensive series that is told by different authors all revolving around the same general theme, and each is a standalone book. One of the main issues I had with Radiant...

    This one was not as good as the rest, either I was confused or the book was confused. I?m going with the book. A lot of things just didn?t line up for me, the flash backs, the different knowledge the guys had, the ending. ...

    This is a fantasy world and all that ... but I didn't feel like the book really provided plausible explanations about how or why things worked. What was that bowl of liquid radiance stuff? How did that work on the MC? etc. Radiant just didn't explain how things worked well enough in co...

    Yahiro deseved some happiness I was so excited to read a new book from Naomi Lucas. Yahiro is so damaged I wanted her to find happiness. The world building is amazing. I think Quist was my favorite . My heart just melted at the last chapter. Yahiro brought hope and happiness to the...

    Still engrossed I liked how this book started a little farther into the story than those that I read previously. It made it feel like there was more time devoted to being with Yahiro and her men. I borrowed this book through the Kindle Unlimited program. ...

    ?Radiant? shines like the sun it is in this extraordinary world! Ms. Lucas created a unique setting in this already unique world. One that brings myth and magic to life. Yahiro is so confused in the beginning that I was too, until she began to clear up some of my questions. After...

    Radient Radiant is book 5 in the Valid of Sonhadra series. It is a good book. I did have some trouble going back and forth from present to understanding the past and wish it had been clearer. I did like the epilogue better than the other books in series. ...

    wild and weird Radiant is a confusing book. Aside from the lack of editing, mangled metaphors ("carousel went off the rails") and awkward word choices ("oathed") there are repeated flashbacks which add nothing of substance to the story while they befuddle the reader. The heroine is ...

    This was my favorite book so far my Naomi Lucas. I liked it so much that I read the entire series. I found it really interesting how different authors approach a similar story. All of the characters start in the same place and end in a similar place but the path is different for all of...

    Best one out of the series so far! Oh wow! Once again Naomi has blown me away with how the story was able to come together so seamlessly! There's so much detail and feeling through out the whole book it's easy to get caught up in it and not want to put it down. I have to say Naomi i...

    Great female character I thought the heroine character dev was very good. A slow reveal of her backstory and her resulting psychological torment. I just gotta say, Wow. Very impressed. The author brought her special type of character dev to the female lead in this book. The one part...

    Such a great read! Each character had two distinct sides that foiled so well. Quist sough vengeance, yet somehow retained innocence. Sundamar was domineering yet vulnerable. Galan was hard to pin down. Single-minded, yet sidetracked by his curiosity. Yahiro was awesome, both cop and cr...
